Let it snow.

I hung a “Let it snow” garden flag in my yard this winter because, well, it was cute.

I regret that decision. Why? I tempted the fates. See below:

OK, to be honest, I still love the flag. It’s really cute. I also love snow. It looks pretty as well.

I just don’t like driving in it. So wish me luck in driving to work tomorrow. Hope you all keep safe and warm as well.

Photo essay: A snowy morning

It was lightly snowing, but I simply couldn’t resist visiting Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area. I had the trip in mind for several days and, well, I did wake up early to take a drive with Izzie.

I was the only person out, which was fine by me. I saw plenty of birds. Here’s some of what I saw:

I’ve seen plenty of Northern Shoveler’s, but the ducks have always been just floating like this.

I finally saw the backside of a Northern Shoveler as the duck flew away. Gorgeous coloring!
